Stethee HACK

In conjunction with the launch of Stethee in January 2018, a few stakeholders have come together to co-organize Stethee Hack. This hackathon aims to build awareness and discover other innovative usage of this versatile and intelligent stethoscope.

Stethee HACK aims to encourage innovative efforts in E-health and to discover the hidden potential of this device in transforming the healthcare delivery process. 

Stethee HACK is for ALL. Whether you are a medical professionals, medical students, medical supporting staff, data scientist, researchers, or educator, you’re welcome to show us what you’ve got! 

Date: 3rd – 5th August (Friday to Sunday)

Time: 8am to 8pm

Venue: MCMC Tower

Application Deadline: Contact us and we’ll let you know.

1.Stethee-ID [Person identification from heart sounds captured using Stethee]

The organizer will provide participants with previously captured heart-sound recordings using Stethee. The data consists of multiple heart-sound recordings captured per identity, and from a variety of different people. The goal is to use the provided training and development set to develop a heart-sound identification system. Teams can then score their system against a provided evaluation set, for which we will provide ground-truth labels at the end of the challenge and announce the winning team.

2.Stethee-BP [Blood pressure index prediction using heart sounds]

The organizer will provide participants with a Stethee device and potentially a blood pressure monitor. The goal of the challenge is to develop an algorithm that analyses heart sounds captured by Stethee (or the analytics provided for heart sound by Stethee/AIDA) to output a relative index that can be used to estimate the subject’s blood pressure from their heart sounds. Participants are required to submit a brief proposal for this track.

3.Stethee-INOV [Innovative proposals of using Stethee]

Participants can submit a proposal for a practical, yet innovative application for Stethee. The organizer will provide participants with a Stethee device. Participants will be able to use Stethee’s captured sounds directly, or utilize the analytics that are returned by AIDA as metadata to complete their challenge.
